Thunderbird Linux date format

Thunderbird on Linux was displaying the date for emails using only 2 digits for the year. My preference is the ISO 8601 format so I investigated how to make the change. This knowledgebase article explained how the formatting is chosen. However it appears that thunderbird wasn’t using my system format. I followed the process on this post to specify my locale for thunderbird. I change the locale value to en_DK.UTF-8 to get ISO 8601 format.
